Skout’s minor problem – Teenagers

The study also contradicts the widely held image of sex abuse in which an adult poses as a teen online to lure minors over with a bait and switch ??? say, promises of playing Xbox that turn into abuse. (Although it???s important to note that it appears in the Skout cases that adults did pose as minors to access the underage portion of the app.) Cases of ???Internet-related child exploitation,??? they report, ???typically involved post-pubescent youth who were aware that they were meeting an adult male for the purpose of engaging in sexual activity.??? One study of such cases found that only 5 percent ???were deceived by offenders claiming to be teens or lying about their sexual intentions??? and  73 percent who ???met an offender in person did so more than once.
